Purpose: to assess the psychosomatic status and quality of life (QOL) of patients undergoing treatment and examination in a cardiac surgery hospital. Material and Methods. The study included 425 patients divided into 243 (57%) men and 182 (43%) women; median age was 61 (54; 66) years. In addition to the standard clinical examination, the quality of life and psychological status of patients were assessed. Patients completed standardized questionnaires of QOL: the Short Form Medical Outcomes Study (SF36), the Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire (MLHFQ), Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS). Results. Indicators of the psychological component of the questionnaire were statistically significantly lower in women compared with male patients: vital activity (VT) 45 (30; 60) vs 50 (35; 65) p<0.001, social functioning (SF) 63 (38; 75) vs 64 (50; 88) p<0.001, and the level of anxiety and depression were significantly higher in women 9 (6; 12) vs 6 (3; 9) and 7 (4; 10) vs 5 (3; 8) (p<0.001).The values of the physical component of health were also lower in women: physical functioning (PF) 45 (25; 65) vs 55 (35; 80) p<0.001; bodily pain (BP) 41 (41; 74) vs 51 (41; 74) p<0.001. Low QOL scores and high levels of anxiety and depression were not due to the severity of the disease, men had more severe nosological status. Conclusion. Most of the patients entering the cardiac surgery hospital have clinically expressed anxiety and depression, which have negatively effect on the quality of their life. This is more typical for female patients.
